TELEPHONE PRIVACY
---------------------------------------------------------------------
The telephone privacy law was passed by the Indiana General Assembly in 2001. Indiana residents can register their home phone numbers on a list. Telemarketers are prohibited from calling any number on the list. There are a few exceptions: charitable organizations who use volunteers or employees to make the calls, newspapers who use employees to make the calls, insurance agents and realtors.

  Sign up for this list on the Indiana Attorney General's web site.
